    Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y510 is Go (Continued / NEW)

    Did a clean install of 11.04 on my Y530, and the sound works perfectly out of the box for me!

    Unfortunately, I experience frequent lockups when running in the default Unity mode, so I've resorted...

    Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y510 is Go (Continued / NEW)

    Appreciate it! If I set that lenovo-sky option, I get no sound at all. But I have NOT compiled the ALSA driver at all -- it was believed that that was no longer necessary in this version of Ubuntu...

    Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y510 is Go (Continued / NEW)

    I've read this thread top to bottom and have been subscribed to it since I got this laptop well over a year ago. I had the sound fixed at one point but newer kernels broke it. I am not the only one...

    Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y510 is Go (Continued / NEW)

    Any Y530 users tried the 11.04 (Natty) beta yet? Does it fix our sound issues? I'm doubtful, but I'll be trying soon. Whether it helps or not, I'll still be upgrading, but I'm curious if anyone else...

    Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y510 is Go (Continued / NEW)

    Okay, I did that and it didn't return anything at all. I tried a bunch of other keys and the Fn key was the only one that literally did nothing at all. Sorry. Let me know if you want me to try...

    If no one has done this by the time I get home from work tonight, I'll be happy to do this for you! I'll check back from home (where my laptop is) and if no one else has done this already, I'll let...

    Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y510 is Go (Continued / NEW)

    Well, it's been over a month, so I thought I'd bump this and see if anyone has found any resolution or workaround. Anyone? Anyone? :) I seriously love this laptop but the lack of Linux support for...

    Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y510 is Go (Continued / NEW)

    Well, that's bad news. Good to know, though, so thanks for letting us all know. That would tend to point toward the kernel itself, I'd think -- unrelated to Ubuntu's customized kernels. UGH.

    Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y510 is Go (Continued / NEW)

    Alright, just ended up installing the 2.6.33.7 kernel, which is apparently the most current kernel that doesn't break our sound.

    The kernel is here: http://bit.ly/gM1WaC

    In my case, for 64-bit...

    Dang. :( Well, thanks for saving me from wasting a lot of time! I just can't believe this is so difficult. I guess the issue is that it doesn't really affect that many people (in the grand scheme of...

    No one has gotten this to work? Gah, it's driving me crazy. Does anyone know if Linux Mint 10 has the same issue? Presumably it's kernel-related, but when I had this same issue with a previous...

    Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y510 is Go (Continued / NEW)

    I installed the latest one, which as of this writing is 2.6.37-rc2. No difference. No sound options in alsa-conf equals very low volume from two speakers; changing it to either lenovo-sky or...
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Printer drivers for Lexmark Pinnacle Pro901 printer

    Thanks! I didn't know they'd put out new drivers. (Once I got it working, I didn't check back.) I'll stick with what I have, but it's good to know that the next time I reinstall or setup a new...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Printer drivers for Lexmark Pinnacle Pro901 printer

    I ended up using a different file. I uploaded it to Ubuntu One just now. I think this is all you need. :) I knew I should have documented it at the time!

    Anyway, download the file to its own...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Printer drivers for Lexmark Pinnacle Pro901 printer

    Okay, my initial findings are not positive. So far, I'm unable to get scanning to work. As best I can tell, Lexmark only supports the Pro901 under Linux as a *printer* -- the rest of the features...

    Re: Getting ALSA to work on Maverick (10.10)

    Just wanted to chime in and parrot what you said. Y530 here, and my results are exactly like you said. Low-volume stereo sound if I have no options on the config file; anything else results in no...
  18. [ubuntu] Re: Printer drivers for Lexmark Pinnacle Pro901 printer

    I was able to use the 32-bit drivers under 64-bit Ubuntu 10.10 and it worked fine. The process was a bit convoluted but it worked in the end.

    (That link you gave for the 32-bit and 64-bit stuff is...

    I tried it and had the exact same results as you: no sound at all. Still hoping someone comes up with a fix or workaround!

    Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y510 is Go (Continued / NEW)

    I was a clean installation, as was wyth, but michaelzap was an upgrade. So no correlation there, it would seem.

    What about 32-bit versus 64-bit? I'm x64 and michaelzap is, too -- wyth, are you...

    Definitely report back your findings! If that fixes it, I'll do the same, but I'll let you be the guinea pig. :) It's the only problem I have with 10.10 but it's pretty bad. Without the surround...

    I'm on the Y530, and it works great, aside from my usual lack of suspend/resume (which I have yet to ever work successfully in any distro on this laptop).
